Deputies said a Thomas County woman attempted to purchase a vehicle via the internet and wrote a check for 25,000 dollars to insure the down payment on the car.

Deputies said the woman was to pay the remainder when the vehicle was received but she never got the vehicle or her money back.

Deputies said this is only one of the scams reported this week.

"I've had several this week. I don't know why this time of year; I don't know if it's because people are coming into their tax returns and they have a little extra money," said Thomas County PIO Captain Steve Jones.

Deputies said three scams were reported this week and they expect more people to come forward with similar complaints.
